Nose Reshaping - Dermal Fillers

Non-surgical rhinoplasty using hyaluronic acid fillers can provide three-dimensional enhancement of the nose. Results are instant, with no downtime. Fillers typically last beyond 12 months in this location. Midline placement of fillers can reduce the ‘width’ of the nose, supratip placement can sharpen the nose, whilst fillers at the base can reduce splaying of the nostrils. Fillers can also hide any bumps & straighten the nose.

Can one reshape the nose without surgery?

A gel-like injectable ingredient known as hyaluronic acid is inserted underneath your skin in the areas where you wish to create smoother lines or volume. I can reshape the nose smoothing out bumps and asymmetry, even after surgical rhinoplasty. Fillers can enhance your side, oblique & front profile.

Strategic placement of fillers in the base, sides, tip, & top can add a three-dimensional modelling to the nose. This is known as a ‘liquid rhinoplasty.’

What is Asian non-surgical rhinoplasty?

This procedure is to give more shape to noses, mainly the bridge of the nose. Ethnics often have a less projected nasal bridge, with dermal fillers we can strengthen the bridge, giving better shape, projection & definition.

The nasal tip can be projected & defined using HA fillers in this area. The result is a sharper nose. In addition, the nasal spine can be enhanced with medial placement of HA filler. This results in better projection as well as a slight narrowing from alar to alar.

How long do nose fillers last?

Approximately 12-24 months, depending on the product used. Over time, your body naturally metabolizes hyaluronic acid. Since our bodies metabolize the filler, most patients undergo touch ups every 12- 24 months to keep their non-surgical rhinoplasty looking its best. It is usual practice for the second filler session to last longer.

As a rule, I do not use fat transfer nor calcium hydroxy apatite in the nose due to fact that these cannot be reversed should an arterial occlusion happen.

How does adding dermal fillers to the nose reduce a big nose?

By creating an illusion. I can highlight the tip & sharpen the nose. This gives an illusion that the nose is smaller.

Davin’s take on nose filler injections

Fillers have largely replaced surgical rhinoplasty of many, but not all ‘nose concerns.’ The majority of my nose procedures are focused on the nasal bridge & or bumps in this area. Though the risks of blood vessel compromise are higher on the nose compared to anywhere on the face, one can reduce but not eliminate risks by staying in the midline, proper injection technique and in some cases using cannulas for contouring.

Fillers can also enhance & sharpen the tip & support the base of the nose (nasal spine). Fillers enable 3D remodelling of almost every area on the nose. Injections are relatively quick (20-30 minutes), with virtually no downtime.

I always use HA fillers in this area as the risks of arterial compromise are somewhat higher in this area. Overall patient satisfaction rate is well over 95%
